360 is NOT the greatest system ever made. It has a good fanbase, but only because of stupid ass Halo. They're poorly made.

I'm surprised it didn't happen sooner.

its about time, everyone i know who owns one has seen the ring of death. why would they release a system that every single unit self destructs? there was a car company in the 80s that did the same thing. they where called yugo.
#14
Maybe if people wouldn't play for 24 hours in a row it wouldn't malfunction. I've only had mine do the ring of death once because I played it all day and left it on for long periods of time. I've had my current one for 2 yrs and 4 months.

EDIT: OH, the whole disc scratching thing. Mine's scratched two games, but they still work fine.

You are extremely lucky. At my place of work the three of us fixed 54 xbox360s. In just one day, there are more that need doing and there are more to be delivered shortly after christmas and 90% of the are RRoD.

Because they don't function the way machinery of that price should and the system itself is as buggy as a Motel 6. Xbox 360 has good games, but it's a shitty excuse for a console.

Because the 360's failure rating was at 33%....when regulations say that a product should only have a 3-5% failure rating?

And that the system's cheaply made and cheaply assembled?

Don't let this turn into a console war.

That being said, PS3 > Xbox 360.

my uncle has only had his for a month or 3 cant remember just got it this year (ps3) and it has already started having problems...he takes care of his systems too (believe me...its scary to know)

Taken from the link posted by LEMUR

"The characteristic circular scratches can occur whenever the orientation of the console -- which is designed to be used in either a horizontal or vertical position -- is changed while the drive is spinning. Johnson filed his suit after his console scratched three store-bought game discs, and is seeking $50,000 in punitive damages. "
I'm fairly sure the manual says NOT to turn the console while a game is in the drive and the console is on. And 50 grand for 3 games that got scratched? This guy let it happen 3 times? No learning curve.

No, it's called "I don't have one problem common enough for it's own name"-syndrome.

I will say that the PS3 isn't without it's share of problems but they're nowhere near as common as anything to do with an xbox.

Interestingly enough though I think we've only dealt with one Wii in the entire time I've been there though, that says something I think...

I'm on my 4th, and each time they send us a new one it seems to last shorter than the one we had before. I've heard they send an Elite for the 10th repair, though, so maybe we'll have upgraded by the end of next year.
